The fabric is so soft and velvety. The color is just the right shade of dove grey. Today I went to the local fine art museum in it and got so many compliments from strangers.
As a pleated skirt lover, I am most concerned about how labor intensive it is to keep the pleats in shape. This skirt is completely care-free. Although the tag indicates dry-cleaning only, I washed it with WoolLight and gentle cycle. The key is to hang it and let it air dry. When it is dry, the pleats are naturally formed and there is no need for ironing.
I read about the static caused by the synthetic fabric from the review about "Tabitha Dress". So today I wore a cotton lining underneath this skirt. It stayed in shape with full volume without any static.
One thing I do want to point out is that you may want to order one size up. I normally wear size 2 or 4. I ordered a size 6 and it fit me just right.

Rated 4 out of 5Â by ClosetfullwithAnthro Ordered this skirt after second cut.
I am a true size 4 and that is what I took in this skirt. The skirt sits on my natural waist but it is on the tighter side. So if you want it to sit lower on your waist or hip or simply want more room size up. Otherwise it is beautiful although unfortunately the pleats widen my already not so narrow hips even more.
If you are a fan of pockets - sorry, there are none in this skirt.
I love the laser-cut design and I can't think of a color it doesnt't go with!
What I don't like is the cheap polyester lining - an almost $300 skirt should at least feature silk lining!
So I don't think it is worth several hundred dollars but very nice at the sales price!
For reference: My waist ist 26/27 inches!

I was so excited to receive this skirt when I tried it on it was WAY little!!!! I normally wear 6-8 in Anthro skirts so I to start by ordering an 8. It hardly zipped up. I am so sad! It almost felt like it was labeled wrong, and it should have been labeled as a 4. I will be returning it. I would recommend this skirt in a larger size.
